How MadRe Tried to Be a "Good Little
DtCKV stared at m In amazement as I
held out my bnnd for the rlR-arette
which n moment before X had refused with
such disapproval I was afraid ho would
make somo comment upon my change of
ntlltudn which would upset me. I was so
nKttated with the conflicting Impulses which
hud swayed mo In the short Interval be
tween my refusal of tho clR-aretto nnd my
decision to try smoking one to please
Dicky,, that I fonrM his possible facetious
ncss as a nervous horse might the stroke
of n whip.
Jlut with Infinite tart Dicky refrained
from any comment whatever upon my sud
den change of front. He drew out the case
again, opened It, nnd held It out to me. I
selected ono of the little white rolls gin
gerly. I suppose my faro must have re
flected some of tho distaste for the experi
ment I felt, for Dicky laughed shortly.
"It won't hlta you," ho said.. "Here, this
end In your mouth." As ho saw me looking
helplessly nt the thing he took It and deftly
Inserted It between my lips. "Now," strik
ing a mutch, "ns I light it, draw In jour
breath Then puff the smoke out Don't
swallow It whatever you do"
For many years I have trained myself
to ohservn closely any directions printed
or oral concerning any new thing I nm
attempting, nnd then to follow them ex
actly. Tim training flood me In good stead
In tills experiment which I so disliked I
followed Dicky's directions to the letter,
and won tho trlhutu of nn admiring ex
clamation from him.
"lly Clcorge, Madge, you're n wonder.
1 can tell hy tho way you go at the thing
mat you have never haa one in your hand

All tho 1'urltan In mo rose up in revolt
That I, of All people, should bo praised for
my dextetlty In manipulating a clgnrettp!
Hut 1 wn. committed to tho thing now; no

To my surprise, I found no trouble In
smoking the cigarette, no sickening, taste

"Don't smoke It all "
Itennon and logic said loud in my ear
"What an absolutely aslntno thing for any
woman or man to do this pulling nt a
little wlillii rolj, under tho nnmo of sociabil
ity, plensuro or anything else!" Another
volcn, which belonged to the emotional self
1 uiiH JUHt beginning to renllzo I possessed,
whispered: "Well, If It be such n silly,
harmless thing to do, why not smoke one
occasionally to pleaso Dicky?' '
t looked up from my teverle to find
DU-ky watching me mlschlevousl
"'ou never stopped pulling nil tho while
you were deciding the momentous questions
you had on your mind." he Hald. gayly. "1
would ndvlsn you to stop now, however. I
would not wnnt you to feel ill, ns you
might do It you finished It ns a flrvt experi
ence And I do want you to smoke ono
again with me. You can't Imagine how
comfy It Is or how bully you looked doing
It. Thank you for pleasing mo this way,
my darling girl."
Ho bent and kissed me. nnd for a mo
ment I felt a glow of plensuro In having
gratified his wish. Then Into my mouth
crept an ncrld tnste, the Indcscrlhnblo taste
of smoke. It did not nauseate me. but. In
Its way, it was ono of tho most disagreeable
things 1 bad ever expel lonced

Dicky sprang to his feet.
"Aro you feeling III, sweetheart? Did
that blasted thing upset you? I ought to
havo stopped you before "
"I am not 111 nt all." I returned, "but tho
tnsto of smoke Is unbearable. I'm going to
wash my mouth out."
"Not thu taste of the morning after, but
tho minute afteri eh, Madge?"
"I think 1 would Just as soon have one
ns the other," I, shot back nt him as I went,
into 1 lie nainroom
I rinsed my mouth carefully with a solu
tion I used for sore throat. I thought
whimsically of tho small schoolboys of my
early teaching days whose mouths I bad
sometimes washed out with soap for using
bad language, nnd, yes, I remembered ono
luckless wight who had received the same
punishment tor clgarctto smoking! I smiled

When I rejoined Dicky he evidently was

saw him do. I did not Hpeak to him nnd
sank Into my chair ns silently ns I could.
Hut lis heard tho rustle of my dress nnd
lifted his bend.
"Feeling better, sweetheart? Dad taste
"Yes, thank you," I returned. "I've ster

Ho made a little gesture of annoyance.
"I suppose If you feel that way about It
you'll hardly try It again."
Ills face looked so downcast that I
hastened to reassure him.
"I'll do It for you, Dicky," I said. "And
It surely Is a proof of my lovo for you, for
I do think It is one of the silliest thlngs-to
do that one could Imagine possible."
"Of course It Is," Dicky assented heartily.
I looked at him in amazement. "You don't
Imagine anybody with a grain ot sense

nut after a while, if you ever get those
l'urilan corners of yours rounded off, that

get used to them."
"Hut. Dicky," I protested, "you know
thoso things nro harmful If curried to ex
cess, and how about tho example you and
I might set to other weaker peoplo who
would not bo able to do things In modera
tion ns wo might?"
Dicky sprang to his feet nnd stretched
himself. Then lie solemnly poured me an

ciple of Omar."
"That's -because he so perfectly exempli
fies the modern watchword, 'What's the use

"But I won't Inflict any more of his old

resulted In a victory at tho first referendum
over held upon tho question In our State."
In referring to the personal side of Miss,
ltankln, Miss Fligclinnn says: "Sho Is a
keen thinker, a tremendous worker, and
she has a thorough knowledge of work
In Congress, gained through her experience
an a suffrage lobblcst In two hesslons nf
Congress nnd In tho Legislatures of New
York. New Hampshire, Delawnre, Florida,
North Dakota and Montana. Sho Is prob
ably moio familiar with governmental ma
chinery than nre many of tho gentlemen
who already conBtltulo tho cog-t of the ma
chinery. She Is also entirely familiar with
social and economic conditions, having stud
led and traveled extensively throughout the
United States. Sho knows Montana's needs
too. for sho has campaigned In every
county In the Stnto. Then, too, she will
have an opportunity to work, for tho cause
of Prohibition In Congress nnd for the In
terests of the children, and she will also
work directly In Congress for the Federal
"We women of Montana feel, too, that It
will be the most eloquent argument which
could be put to the eastern Congressmen,
who have hitherto Ignored tho demand for
national suffrage made by the enfranchised
women of the United States, to have a
woman In Congress."
CHILD LABOH HOBBY
Miss ltankln makes a special point of
the congressional work which Is needed
for the little children of the nation. She
dovetails her political plank of suffrago
with that of decent legislation for children
and national prohibition.
'Several years ago during one session of
Congress," says Miss Rankin In talking of
the need of somo one to represent the little
children In Congress. "J300.000 was appro
priated for tho study of fodder for hogs.
At tho Bame session JSO.O00 was nppro
proprlated for the study of the needs of the
nation's children. If hogs of the nation
nre ten times more Important to the men
than are the children of the nation. It Is
high time that women should make tholr In
fluence felt In Congress. We have several
hundred men In -Washington to care for the
nation's tariff and the Irrigation nnd the
bogs llut there Is not a single woman to
take care of the Interests of the children."
Try These Piquant SauctH and Secure
a New Food Flavor
STAHCIinS In some form potatoes or
rice or bread nre present In good quan
tity In every well-balanced meal. When nil
the usual changes have been rung on tho
serving of potatoes or tho other starches,
and baking, boiling, frying nnd creaming
have begun to pall a llttlo, try somo un
usual wnys of serving the starches to
tempt nppetltlcs anew. It Is said that de
llclous French cooking Is mostly sauce, and
how often do we find burled under a most
appetizing sauce nnd weighty French name
a -very homely vegetable or a rather cheap
cut of meat.
Most sauces have as their basis a "white"
sauce or "brown" sauce. Tlio whlto sauce
Is so called because, whllo flour Is mixed
In tho saucepan with butter juBt as In the
case of the brown sauce, tho flour Is not
permitted to brown. The brown sauce is
mado by cooking butter end flour together
until tho flour Is browned. It Is necessary
to stir the mixture constantly to prevent
burning, Gravy or stock, one cupful for
each tnblespoonful of flour and butter used,
A delicious sauce to bo added to boiled
rice or diced potatoes Is made as follows:
Six peeled, chopped potatoes, two chopped
green peppers, four chopped onions, one
tablosponful of salt, two cupfuls of vinegar.
These Ingredients nre cooked together
until soft, which will probably take two
nnd one-half to tlitfe hours. .Then remove
from tho stove "Snd strain thoroughly
through a colander.
Another tart sauce that makes starchy
foods moro palatable 1b n Spanish sauce
which Is made as follows:
Tvv.ii tablcspoonfuls of melted butter, three
tablespoonfuls of flour, ono tnblespoonful of
chopped ham, one tnblespoonful of chopped
celery, one tablespoonful of chopped onion,
one tablespoonful of chopped parsley, two
cupfuls of meat stock or hot water, one
quarter tcaBpoonful of salt, one-half tea
spoonful of paprika, two cloves, ono bay
leaf, one mace.
The ham and vegetables are cooked until
brown with the flour and butter mixture,
salt and paprika. Then other Ingredients
nre added and cooked slowly for about two
hours, when they are pressed through the
colander, and can bo poured over the molded
rice. If there Is any sauce loft over It can
be poured over a luncheon dish ot poached
eggs on toast points.
A quickly made sauce that Is excellent
for hot broiled or fried fish and oven for
chops Is made by mixing together the following:
One tablespoonful ot butter, one-half
tablespoonful of Juice ot lemon, -one-half
tablespoonful of chopped parsley, one-halt
tablespontul of sojt, dash of pepper.
These Ingredients are mixed together
thoroughly (cold) and the finished mixture
spread on top of the fish or meat with which
It Is to be served.
DIARY OF A WELL-DRESSED GIRL
Turning a Lace Frock Into a Smart Tea Gown
IT SEKMUD a pity not to get more than
two wcarlngs out of my laco party dress
frock, but dad had tnken a dislike to it.
There was nothing left to do but rip It
apart nnd use tbe materials for something
Aunt Katheryn happened to drop In upon
the scene when the process of ripping was
going on, After hearing my tale of woo she
said: "Make yourself a pretty, fluffy tea
gown out of the lace. If thero Isn't enough,
buy some pink crepe de chine, which al
ways cleans well, and combine with It."
As luck would have It, I had somo pale
pink crcpo de chine, bought for the purpose
of making "nighties."
I decided to mako a slip of the crepe de
chine and use the laco for an overdress.
Taking four tjnd a half widths of tho silk
which was a yard wide I Joined them to
gether and had the skirt box-plaited,
Then I made a snugly fitted, sleeveless
bodice with u low, rounded neckline, I edged
the nrmholes and docollctage with a frill
of narrow Valenciennes lace and stitched
the bodice to tbe skirt. After hemming the
skirt I called Mrs. Jimmy over and asked
her to slip on the foundation so that I could
try different ways of arranging the lace
Shadow lace falls In such soft, cloud-like
folds, and It was hard to know which was
the prettier to, mako. a double skirt of the
lace flouncing or drape It to form long
I'lnnlng and unpinning the lace at least
twenty times, I finally decided on the
L cut off a piece of lace large enough to
make the Jacket of the tea gown, and di
vided the remainder Into halves. Taking one
piece, I fnstened nn end to the center-front
of the skirt at the waistline, and the op
posite end to the center-back. Then I
gathered the ends and drew the fullness
close to the waist, stitching It In place.
The lace, draped In this manner, formed n
long, sweeping pannier. I repeated the ar
rangement on the other side and trimmed
each pannier with a large pink silk tassel.
It took but a very little tlmo to make the
Jacket. It hangs loose from the shoulders,
much like a cape, and forms two points In
front and the same number at the back.
